Gourmet paninis are the jewels here, from hot sopresata and pepper-studded mortadella glued together by provolone and luscious red pepper pesto to a chocolate rendition for the Waldorf set. But also content yourself with the wondrous gelatos: 16 separate flavors constructed daily with just water, sugar and fruit-no preservatives, chemicals or other artificial gunk. Each flavor not only tastes like its corresponding fruit, but also leaps onto the tongue: furious, refreshing, delicious.
